And except for the fact that she looked a little outdated, she was beautiful right from the start too. Just look at those great curves!
My immediate thought was to accentuate the French details with a combination of Paris Grey and Old White Chalk Paint.
And I do love that the chalk paint works so well on hardware too. No need to change a thing here. These were perfect too.
I painted the entire piece with two coats of the grey, then went back over the details I wanted to highlight with just one coat of white. You don't have to worry about being perfect here. Distressing will soften the lines where the two colors meet.
